Have you ever wondered what storms are, where they come from and how they are made? First of all what types of storms can you think of? Hurricanes, snowstorms, tornadoes, lightning, hailstorms, sandstorms and blizzards. Well, there are loads more but the three I’m focusing on you will soon know all about so buckle up and get comfy!

Big Idea 1
lightning. Lightning is a bright flash of electricity which is created when there is negative energy in the air and on the ground there is positive. Here is an example of how electricity is created. Electricity creates when you slide around around on the carpet and then touch a doorknob you would probably get a electric shock wouldn't you. Well if you haven’t then you should definitely try. Lightning kills and injures more people each year than tornadoes and hurricanes which is between 75-100 people.

Big Idea 2
hurricane’s, a hurricane is a huge storm of evaporated water but it is caused by heat and energy. It can be up to 600 miles across and have strong winds spiralling inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. The centre of the storm the “eye” is the calmest part, also hurricanes rotate in a counterclockwise direction around the eye.

Big Idea 3
And last but not least, tornadoes. A tornado is a violent rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. The most powerful tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction from uprooting trees to ripping up houses with speeds of 300 mph. In an average year, about 1000 tornadoes are reported.

Concluding Statement

We are now at the end. So go tell your friends, family and teachers. What these three storms are, where they come from, what they do and how they’re created. Don’t worry you can unbuckle now, but before you go… what other storms do you know about?
